65% Kid Mohair
35% Peduncle Silk

100g (3.5oz)

This has been well blended to mix the different fibres thoroughly. A new version of my Silk & Mohair base. It's been tweaked to increase the mohair content (more fluff, more halo!), and the silk is now peduncle silk.This form of silkcomes from the tropical Tasar caterpillar in India. When the caterpillar spins its cocoon it first produces a stem known as a peduncle, for the cocoon to hand from. Peduncle silk has a shorter staple length, and a greater bulk than many of the other silk types. Its natural colour is a stunning shade of grey-brown. 
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours.

Cool handwash only, will felt. For more detailed washing instructions take a look here.

Established in 2011, Hilltop Cloud is run, and owned by Katie Weston. I live in rural mid-Wales and spend my days surrounded by colour, and beautiful fibre. I think I have the best job in the world and am really happy to be able to share what I create.
